Jeff Sessions Laughs at High School Conservatives Chanting "Lock Her Up!"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was giving a speech at the Turning Point USA Student Leadership Summit, which is basically Trump Youth or whatever, when the crowd of high school conservatives started chanting "LOCK HER UP!" And because he is a massive shitwheel, the nation's top law enforcement officer had a good old laugh at the call to imprison a private citizen who has committed no crime.

Sessions: I like this bunch. I gotta tell ya. You're not gonna be backing down. Go get 'em! Go get 'em! [shouts from audience] Rather than moaning— [more shouting; Sessions chuckles; the crowd starts chanting "LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP!"] Lock her up! [Sessions laughs; the chanting increases] Well, so, I heard that a long time, over the last campaign.
This, after Hillary Clinton continued her unyielding criticism of Donald Trump's fealty to Vladimir Putin over the weekend, and after Trump started his war on dissidents in earnest yesterday, threatening to yank the security clearances of Obama officials who have been critical of him.

This is not funny. It is incredibly serious.
